-based technique that is the fbi has been using for many decades to successfully get hardened serial killers, for example, to confess to very heinous crimes. it works with detain knees as well. in fact, what i did when i went down there and the first interrogation plan they showed me was filled with just horrendous behavior escalating all the way to torture and sending people to third countries to be tortured. so that kind of stuff was ineffective. that's why they asked us to come down to help them improve their plans. and then to show them how report base works, i took the worst detainee. a guy who was doing nothing but reciting the koran from memory when interrogating him, i took him and used repoire-base techniques to connect him to a human building no matter who you are. in 11 days i got him to go from complete silence to jim, my friend, what can i do for you? he was working for us at that point. >> i think part of what we are doing here is going exactly where we don't want to go as a country, which is having a conversation about whether torture works or not. i don't think anyone credibl

for ten years, we had what senator feinstein is suggesting, it was allowed to expire, the fbi, the justice department and others, the studies made no difference. if we're looking at things that are effective, let's talk about it, but first, let's talk about protecting our kids. >> you heard what david keen, who's the nra president had to say on cbs face the nation regarding gun laws, what do you think? >> well, with all due respect to the nra, and i believe in the second amendment in general, but i also believe that i won't pretend to be a gun rights lobbyist if they don't pretend to be school security experts. that way we can respect our field. one gun in the hands of a kid is one too many in a school. when we look at the firepower, i think we need to have some rational conversations on the gun issue and stop politicize. within 24 hours, we started circling the wagons on this issue. and yes, that needs to be a conversation, we also need to balance out that conversation, what are we going to do when kids come back to school in two weeks and how do we pull back all these other resources tha

. and the agents on the scene are depicted as okay with that. in real life, when that happened a fbi agent who was on the scene had a fit, began yelling at the agents, threatened to have them arrested and said this isn't the way we do this or the way americans do this. so really dramatic confrontations about the moral issues that were going on there. >> is there anything that the senators in writing this, have they asked for anything in return? >> they have. they have asked that sony make it clear that it's fiction but what the senators really could do and the reason the movie is so powerful is so much is still classified so all we have is the movie. we have the movie giving us sort of a window on something we haven't seen and they could get more declassified. >> amy davidson, thanks so much. great to see you. >>> it's looking like christmas here at 30 rock. more about that after break. ] you know exactly what it takes to make them feel better. ♪ you make me happy [ female announcer ] that's why you choose children's tylenol. the same brand your mom trusted for you when you were young. ♪ h
not been discussed is how quickly or the fbi -- i was troubled by how long it took the fbi to get to the scene, and we need to make sure that we are falling back to where we were before september 11 where things get stovepipe within agencies information is not being communicated, and when agencies are not working together. senator mccain pointed out an example, that there were eyewitnesses that it took days for us to get information, about what those by witnesses had seen, which would have cleared up a misrepresentation that was made about the reaction to the video from day one. i think those questions have to be answered to make sure that we prevent future attacks like this. >> there will be as we know nominations coming forward for a secretary of defense, a new director of the cia. these questions will be part of that process. they will be part of our obligation as our role of advice and consent. questions? >> you talked about the failure of leadership the report highlights. do you think people above should be held accountable? i know secretary clinton is leading. >> the buck al
lanza's computer hard drive? >> well, the fbi is still working on that. their facility at quantico, virginia. remember that computer was -- had been destroyed by that -- by the shooter in this case. and so they've been trying to piece together the hard drive. now, we don't have any information about what they're finding, but in the meantime, of course, they're trying to find some kind of digital footprint for this young man. was he sending e-mails to anybody? did he flag his intentions to anyone? for the most part, we've been unable to find anyone who was a friend of his, at least recently. he seemed to spend most of his time in his house, you know, playing video games. and so authorities are trying to talk to family and friends to find out as much about him as they can to get down to the bottom of this, to find a motive. miguel? >> candi, thank you very much. i know it's been a tough one. have a good day. >> mm-hmm. >>> aaa predicts some 93 million americans will travel between now and new year's. and many of them have had to face situations like this. this blizzard shot by irepor

? >> well, the process has been streamlined through the operation center with the fbi. that database has done a very, very good job from finding and prohibiting people who are criminally prohibited from purchasing and owning a firearm. so that process is a matter of you completing the form 4473. the seller of the firearm, the ffl holder. federal firearms licensee, reviews the information, either making a phone call to the operation center, acronym for national criminalistic background. >> to check it out. >> correct. >> you are very responsible when it comes to checking people out. you are more resourceful than most. >> and i think the industry as a whole, the national shooting sports foundation partnered with atf and they conduct regional seminars all over the country to train retailers to properly engage and visit with people. >> okay. >> so that they understand whether or not it's a person -- >> i get your point. hang on. i still don't understand why it takes longer to get a driver's license than it does to actually, to get an assault weapon and the ammunition to go with it? i don't u
the fbi agents cut that are protecting our borders and our nation from a challenge. people will be cut out on programs that support the poorest americans get access to healthy food and a strong strength for their children and this is what bothers me right now. there is a way forward through this. >> there is a way forward and, peggy, i want to bring it back to you. it does seem if you look at the constellation of forces in washington, the only way that something is actually going to get to the president's desk is if house speaker john boehner agrees to let there be a vote on something that will get democratic votes and republican votes and probably shear off his most conservative members. >> that may be true. that may be where this whole thing ends, but i think it still has to be made, this point, that everybody, republicans included on capitol hill, they all know there's going to be a tax increase. they know it. >> done. >> this is coming. even if it doesn't come in sequester, it's going to come in a deal, so they all know that, but for two reasons, one for the seriousness of it, a $16 tr
wayne lapierre, you're wrong. >> you've got 35 states that don't cooperate with the fbi on background checks. you've got states now that permit gun, conceal guns in elementary schools, you've got such a patchwork quilt of states permitting guns and access to guns in places where common sense says they shouldn't be but certainly on these magazines. >> why not a bill that says how about federal grants for armed security in schools, address mental health, i mean, it's a conversation about culture as well as some of these gun restrictions because it sounds likes that's not where the administration is headed. >> i don't know how they get it through the house. in 1994 in a democratic-controlled house 216-214 is how the assault weapon ban was in the house, that was democratic controlled house, 258 democrats were in that house of representatives. you you're not going to see anything. maybe the magazine clip. i do think the magazine clip could you see some sort of movement there but this goes back to why the president has to get a deal before thend end ofe year. if the entire year is lost goi
the right lessons learned that has to be completed in terms of investigation. we need the fbi to finish the criminal investigation to find out the perpetrators, terrorists, that did this so we can get them. second, in what the talking points episode was all about, how come the interagency, good reasons or bad reasons, changed those talking points overtime? we need -- as senator feinstein once said, to understand the process so it's done better in the future. a big believer of lessons learned and applying them. which didn't happen in the state department this time. it was not needing, the restriction and requirements of the last accountability review board completed in 1999. we didn't have that meeting those standard and learned that lesson again. >> a painful one indeed. good to see you as always. many thanks. >> happy holidays. >> and to you in the one-minute play back, weird holiday traditions. jimmy fallon had #latenig #latenighthashtags. he asked viewers to send in weird holiday traditions. after june wrapping a present, we ball up the paper and throw it at the ceiling fan and cheer
